Former Packers wide receiver Donald Driver appeared on 620 AM WTMJ’s “Wisconsin’s Afternoon News” on Tuesday and was asked about recent comments he made about quarterback Aaron Rodgers last week.
Driver didn’t exactly clarify his comments but rather put the onus on the media, saying, “So many people take things out of context. I never said anything about Aaron. They asked me to give my opinion of what I thought Greg Jennings meant what he said about all those things about Aaron.”
In an interview on ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike,” last Thursday Driver had said, “We’ve always said that the quarterback is the one that needs to take the pressure off everyone else. If a guy runs the wrong route, it’s easy for the quarterback to say, ‘Hey, I told him to run that route’ than for the guy to be like, ‘Well, I ran the wrong route.’ Sometimes you ask Aaron to take the pressure off the guys so we won’t look bad, but he didn’t want to do that. He felt like if you did something bad, you do it. But I think that’s the difference. You want that leadership, and I think sometimes you may not feel like you got it. You have to earn that respect at the end of the day, and I think that’s what Greg was probably referring to.”
